This book, co-written by a team of European competition law specialists, offers critical perspectives on the whole range of issues in EU competition law. The book has two distinctive features: the first is that unlike similar works which present the law from either an enforcement agency or practitioner perspective in a fairly conventional manner, this work offers fresh, critical reflections on the state of the law. The second is that the authors are young academics, practitioners and administrators who have worked in the relevant fields and who are relatively new 'voices' in the competition law literature. Drawn from diverse jurisdictions and professional backgrounds the authors bring a distinctively 'European' feel (for instance not drawing exclusively on English language literature), and manage to introduce debates that have been taking place in the non-English language world, thereby assisting a more comprehensive dialogue in this field. The diversity in their professional backgrounds means that each chapter adopts a different perspective, with some chapters focusing on practical solutions to problems, and others exploring more general theoretical questions.

The textbook-like structure places the issues in their appropriate contexts and ensures that readers see how the discussion in each chapter links with the body of law as a whole.

The book is aimed at academic lawyers and practitioners, complementing existing textbooks and allowing the reader to extend his or her understanding of the subject and provide a quick source of reference to the main doctrinal debates on the subject, and offer fresh perspectives on the topics covered. The impact of EU competition law beyond Europe also means that this book will appeal to lawyers in the US, Australia, Canada and beyond.

Associate Editor Assimakis Komninos is a senior associate in the Brussels office of White & Case and also practices as a lawyer at the Athens Bar. He is also a visiting lecturer at the Université d'Aix-Marseille III.
